John McCain Has A Comprehensive Economic Plan!!!11!1!111!


by Turkana

Not only that, but...

John McCain will put the national interest ahead of partisanship to build an America that is safer, freer and more prosperous than when he was elected.!!!1!1!!!!11

And...

John McCain will help Americans hurting from high gasoline and food costs.!!!1!!!!1111!!!

And...

John McCain's Lexington Project will address the rising costs of energy that are hurting small businesses.!1!1111!!1!!

You see, I was just reading the Washington Post:

Spread John McCain's official talking points around the Web -- and you could win valuable prizes!

That, in essence, is the McCain campaign's pitch to supporters to join its new online effort, one that combines the features of "AstroTurf" campaigning with the sort of customer-loyalty programs offered by airlines, hotel chains, restaurants and the occasional daily newspaper.

On McCain's Web site, visitors are invited to "Spread the Word" about the presumptive Republican nominee by sending campaign-supplied comments to blogs and Web sites under the visitor's screen name. The site offers sample comments ("John McCain has a comprehensive economic plan . . .") and a list of dozens of suggested destinations, conveniently broken down into "conservative," "liberal," "moderate" and "other" categories. Just cut and paste.

I went to the site (and I will now bathe in turpentine and kerosene!), and the current featured blogs to spam are Red State, Jeff Emanuel, and Daily Kos. It's been a while since I've posted at Daily Kos, but this might be the motivation I need!

People who sign up for McCain's program receive reward points each time they place a favorable comment on one of the listed Web sites (subject to verification by McCain's webmasters). The points can be traded for prizes, such as books autographed by McCain, preferred seating at campaign events, even a ride with the candidate on his bus, known as the Straight Talk Express, according to campaign spokesman Brian Rogers.

A ride on the bus! What could be cooler than that? As my eighteen-month old son might point out:

The wheels on the bus go round and round
Round and round
Round and round
The wheels on the bus go round and round
All through the town!

Woo hoo!!!1!11!1!
